Hostages to Fortune
The author, at an Ace convention in St. Louis.
The Clarks of New Jersey Web log has been very quiet in recent weeks. Business travel and work have encroached upon free time. Casey Clark, the author, has been in St. Louis, Indianapolis, Chicago – all in the last three weeks. And he’s going to Denver and Atlanta in the coming month. Work, work, work.
Here is what the great Bertrand Russell wrote about work: “Work is of two kinds: first, altering the position of matter at or near the earth’s surve relatively to other such matters; second, telling other people to do so. The first kind is unpleasant and ill paid; the second is pleasant and highly paid.”
Anyway, Daddy is happy not to have to move heavy objects. The readers of this log will kindly forgive the author for his neglect and remember that the value of entertainment contained herein combines high value and low price. More on the Clarks of New Jersey will be broadcast soon. Thank you for your patience.
